It's Beckett's world - you just live in it.

Funny things Mom says

"Beckett, socks go on my feet, not in your mouth!"

"Must you put everything in your mouth?!?" (Duh!)

I think Mom knows about my Labrador parties. I really thought Joey and Willie Wonka could keep that secret! And Mom finding my Twitter? Oh no!

Petra says confession is good for the soul; what do you guys think?

Ruh roh...

Mom got out that Noisy Sucking Machine on Monday and sucked up all my furs. Then she said, "Beckett, there is no way this much fur could have come from one dog. Have you been having friends over while I'm at work?"

Ummmmmm... Would I do that?

Righteous indignation

My mom would like to believe that she has attained a mindset in which she lives in harmony and is part of the solution, not the problem, but...

Lately she's really been on a roll with the Righteous Indignation.

So far this week she has been indignant about:
-her Work changing its vending contract from Coke to Pepsi (and she rarely drinks soda!)
-Red Sox players getting injured in the blasted World Baseball Classic
-irresponsible pet owners

See, yesterday Mom and I were on our lunchtime walk when we were approached by a big, strong, unneutered male dog who was dragging about 25 feet of heavy metal chain and the stake that the chain was attached to. Naturally, I wanted to play with him, so I went over and bounced right into his face. Fortunately, he was a pretty friendly fellow and he didn't take offense at my direct approach. (I'm not big on doggie pleasantries, truth be told.) For some reason my mom was a total killjoy and dragged me home immediately.

When she got home, she left me there and went outside to look for the other dog so she could see if he had any identification. One of our neighbors was already out there. Unfortunately, he didn't have any tags on his collar and neither the neighbor nor Mom had ever seen him before. So Mom went back to Work (whatever that is) and the neighbor stayed with the dog to wait for Animal Control to come pick him up.

Mom was pretty scared by the whole thing. She feels sort of guilty about the dog having to go with Animal Control and hopes nothing bad happens to him. Mostly she's just mad that people didn't take care of him.

Toy basket?

My mom does this confusing thing every couple of days where she goes around the house and gathers up all my toys, then puts them in something she calls the Toy Basket. I do not approve of this and immediately get to work taking them out of the basket and restoring them to their rightful place - the big bed!
Oh, just make yourself comfortabuhls.
Do any of your humans exhibit this strange behavior?

Help a human pup!

Hey dog bloggers,

My mom read about a human pup from Indiana who just had his second brain surgery. He has an online guestbook and would like to collect 100,000 messages. So if you have a minute to send good wishes to this very brave human pup, head on over to his website and drop him a line!

Joey Palooza Day Three

Today, I went for a really fun long walk.

And in honor of Joey's new Snoop Dogg dog toy, here is a video of Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg making mashed potatoes:

Day two of Joeypalooza

This Joeypalooza holiday is the greatest thing ever! My mom is really letting me live it up. She says it's because she was sick in January and so we didn't really celebrate my Gotcha Day.

Anyway, today she gave me this:
Lamb Bone
Lamb bones are the BEST!

omdog it's JOEYPALOOZA!

I kicked JOEYPALOOZA off in style this morning. I did zoomies all around the house and also did my patented Beckett jump and turn onto Mom's bed... just after she'd made it.
